Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas – a series of daily posts about, you guessed it – Christmas. If you’re just finding us, you may like to start at Day12 and make your way through from there. Thank you for being here!
3rd Day of Christmas: A Weary World Rejoices
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29
We’re almost there! Today we’re not going to find 3 French hens, but a call to worship on this 3rd day of Christmas.
One of my all-time favorite Christmas songs is “O Holy Night”. The lyrics are so full of biblical truth:
O Holy Night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
‘Til He appears and the soul felt its worth
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees; O hear the Angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born
One of the most beautiful renditions of this traditional Christmas carol I have heard is this version below. May you be blessed as you listen and worship the One who brings peace to this weary world.
